Overview

Gentle Giant were one of the most celebrated progressive rock bands to emerge from the U.K. in the '70s, marked by their ambitious compositions that melded elements of classical music with rock and performed with the dynamics and force of a virtuoso rock ensemble. While Gentle Giant never rose to superstardom, they had a truly loyal following and through most of the '70s they recorded and toured regularly, leaving behind a striking and diverse body of work. Memories of Old Days: A Compendium of Curios, Bootlegs, Live Tracks, Rehearsals and Demos 1975-1980 is a five-disc box set of rare and unreleased material, dominated by concert recordings and rehearsal tapes but also including demos, studio outtakes, and glimpses into the recording process. For fans who embraced the earlier box sets Scraping the Barrel and Under Construction, Memories of Old Days offers a deeper look into Gentle Giant's archive of rarities.
